weird hydraulic noise after turning off the Jeep

I just recently got a Viper remote start installed in my 2014 Wrangler Sport and driving home the next day I noticed the fan sort of had a louder then usual whizzing sound to it. It wasn't crazy loud, but I noticed it. I know it's the fan because when I turn off the fan the sound goes away.

When I got home, I turned off the Jeep and noticed the sound of hydraulics disengaging. Weird. I've googled around a bit and think it may be something in the blower motor? I thought I'd ask for more opinions. I am going to talk to bestbuy tomorrow but I might just take it to the dealer to have it looked at because I don't want someone who did a crap job to start with to screw it up again.

By fan do you mean the AC\Heater fan or engine radiator fan?

Since the cold snap blew in recently is it possible the heater was blowing on high to keep up AFTER the install - but not before it (making it more noticeable)... (if you are anything like me you are hyper sensitive to changes after having work done... which could include noticing something you never did before - but was there anyway).

My 11 has auto climate and it does make noise after shutdown as it sets the diverter to neutral (open to atmosphere) position at ign off...

The AC/Heater fan. I have an appointment with the dealer on Friday. It's cold as the arctic here now, I'm not willing to risk any weirdness with my heater now. Hopefully it's nothing major.

My climate system acted up at about 5k miles - dealer fixed the diverter motor - it still makes noise at shut down but not as bad as when it was trying to move and couldnt!

probably simple - doubt the viper has anything to do with it.

good luck.

Mine makes the sound of a muffled pissed bee, when I turn the key off-

Shut down the Flux Capaciter-

UPDATE
Okay, so I took it in to the shop, the guy gave it a listen, heard it, and informed me that it was totally normal. I'm good with that. It doesn't even have 5k miles on it yet so it better not be crapping out yet! I think I'm just oversensitive to stuff, especially after an install. I'm always looking for something to be wrong so I can fix it quick. Anyway, all clear.

Turn the key off sometime and stay in the jeep you'll hear lots of weird noises. Welcome to the computer age my friend.
